South Park Won’t Apologize To GLAAD

Comedy Central has issued a statement in response to GLAAD’s condemnation of last week’s episode of South Park in which characters used the word “fag” dozens of times.

“South Park” is famous for tackling controversial subject matter in thoughtful and hilarious ways. This particular episode of the show has been both criticized and applauded within the gay and lesbian community. With all of that in mind, we will let this “South Park” episode speak for itself.

On Friday, GLAAD posted a link to South Park’s fan page on Facebook.

GLAAD encourages you to contact Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, as well as Comedy Central, to share your personal stories of the negative impact the F-word and other anti-gay slurs have had on your life. It is important that the people behind South Park realize that the F-word is not just a harmless insult; it is a hateful word with often violent consequences.
